We truly are among like-minded individuals in the book blogging community. Just a day after I posted about our hosting the Check Off your Reading List Challenge for 2014 (do sign up here if you haven’t already), our dear blogging friend, Carrie Gelson of There is a Book for That also shared her #mustreadin2014. And fellow book-kindreds Linda Baie of Teacher Dance and Maria Selke of Maria’s Melenage have also put together a widget and the hashtag and organized a good number of individuals to join in the fun for the New Year! What a great way to start 2014.
And of course we are in! What better way to build a community of readers than to cheer each other on in our reading challenges as we gradually check off our reading lists. GatheringBooks is going for our usual 365 book challenge across all three of us (Fats, Iphigene, and myself). Check out our Annual Reading Calendar from 2011, 2012, and 2013. For 2013, we have exceeded our 365 reading goal and read 489 books in all! I have personally read 331 books! Not bad.
